This video shows a different angle than the original video. ---------------------- A Maywood teacher was arrested Friday after he was involved in a fight with a student during class.
Video from the confrontation at Maywood Academy High School shows the teacher and the student exchanging blows during band class.
Students in the class say an argument over a school dress code was what escalated the situation. The student was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Please help ($50,000 to bail him out ) #justiceforriley"
"It’s so sad what happened today, Mr.Riley did not deserve this....he’s such a great teacher. I hope that freshman learned a lesson. It’s so upsetting how the News made him look like the bad guy when it was really self defense the whole time. But they obviously don’t see it as self defense because of his skin color and that is really a huge problem going around nowadays if you think about it. Also the news don’t have full information on what happened. Me as a maywood academy student I’m really embarrassed at the moment because our teacher is being seen as a “child abuser “ on the news for something so ignorant.
